Clegg’s YouGov ratings were substantially better than Corbyn’s now getting just before the election that saw his party almost wiped out

One of the polling elements that I’ve been highlighting in recent weeks is how leader ratings have proved to be a better pointer to electoral outcomes than voting intention polling.

The above charts seek to put into context Corbyn’s latest ratings. Clearly there’s four and a half years still to go and things can happen but I can find no example of a leader doing so badly on this scale who went on to turn things round. It is hard to see anything other than another CON majority.
